Okay, who loves squash? Yeah, I know, it’s pretty tough not to. I love it too, especially since you can buy it when the mood strikes you and leave it sitting pretty on your counter until you need it (can I get a yes for no spoilage?), and it’s pretty tasty & nutritious too. Yup, squash is awesome, and in most places, an easy to find local food.
A vegetable I don’t often use though is fennel, as unless it’s juiced, I’ve never really found it that appealing in taste or in texture until recently. I love that about food (and most anything), there seems to always be something new & amazing to discover, whether it’s a cooking method, a new spice or any single ingredient. It’s all a giant sprawling rabbit hole that really can keep going on forever so long as we decide to keep pushing forward, and it’s never too late (never) to pick up again and start anew.
